your vision and your strategies. block captains aided us in our recovery. block captains are people living on blocks who stepped up to say, i will be the eyes and ears of my area. i will walk and see who's back and who's not and their intensions. our block captain program is still alive now. we restructured it we are moving from who's back and who's not to dealing with the quality of life issues that arrive on a daily basis. whether it's you know crime, whether it's blight, whether it's zoning issues. people rebuilding and not adhering to the new zoning laws it's constant. i would also take you through marketing your neighborhoods now. starting to, we were digtus media inc. who was a corporation in san francisco provide us with light post banners with no cost and we were able to put them through the neighborhoods. it afforded the opportunity to have banners and what do you call them -- i can't think of the name, billboards throughout the neighborhoods to claim that broadmoored. it had an impact on people buying in the momentum and getting involved in the community and feeling that m
that because people complain that's private property so i want us to understand what we're legally entitled to have as on open and free owned slide walk and private and verses public property. they said what you do is look at the furthest pro truks of any part of the building in that one block and how that comes out even if it's an e illegal pro truks, everything can be parked from that in visible line-up against all the other buildings and we're left with these thin ribbons of concrete often not flat we're forced to maneuver around often single file and that's not pedestrian safety. what are the rules about what is a sidewalk, what is private proper timed why can't we get enforcement against those violations? >> perhaps we could pass the microphone to james lee? >> sidewalk parking - anything of the vehicle as far as the bumper is illegal. we address all issues of sidewalk parking. now if your calling in and someone's giving your opinion how close this is to the building we need to hear this. we shouldn't be making that judgement. we should just send someone out there to enforce this. ma

use, when we take that space, we make a bulb out or curb extension and you can use that and let the pedestrians be safe and can see the traffic and be seen by people coming at them. and elimination plays a role here, because a lot of people think you want right at the cross walk, infact you want the light to be 25 feet away on either side and that gives what the pedestrians need at the crosswalk. and getting them out to be seen and providing elimination. and slash the numbers lanes, and maybe cross the directions to cross. and slashing the number of lanes and using a median refuge, and on a two-way street and you pet a median refuge and get one half one direction. and here in san francisco, and so many signal light turning and the right turning and people on red. and in new york city, they don't have right turn on red, and if i had one change it would be to eliminate right turn on red. that was a big mistake and it encourages people to run red lights, and you can do that when you have given the priority to the motorists. and when i was staying there is a left turn trap lane and
and traveling from uses of the street as which not to stray. and that there are people on the street, pedestrians and you expect to meet them. and usually they are in district conflict with the physical design of the street is telling drivers and others to do. until drivers and pedestrians and bicycles become so inundated with the signs and they begin to give it up and ignore it all and then safety plummets. and it's a race with no finish lane and a race we won't win. and we need to design streets so that the physical cues tell us the right messages of how to behavior. when we think of how to design the streets, we look for the tools needed and those that are available for our use. and we know how to do it and it's not too much of a science. and closely spaced trees and gracious sidewalks with clear paths for travel. and street lines and street fronts that are skilled to the pedestrian and walking pace. and interesting street activities on the sidewalk, and well marked crossing walks and correctly sized travel lines when, and where to park and creative parking arrangements are just
of shipping containers. it was important for us that we made this project for the place, of the place. what i mean by that is participants would also used repurchased materials. >> we will be speaking to one of the artists that you selected. what excited you about his idea? >> have many things. first of all, i am a fan of his architecture. because of that creativity, i knew that he could come up with something unique. i love the fact that he was specifically addressing the landscape around here, and it was also about the human interaction with this place. >> what are your expectations with the people coming to presidio habitat? >> we really hope people will come with their family, dogs, and come back a number of times the works will change over the year. the feedback we are getting is you cannot do all of them on one visit. it is really better to come back and have different experiences. >> thank you. i am with mark jensen of jensen architect. he was one of the architects to be chosen to do the presidio habitat. when you heard about this project, what inspired you about that call? >> our insp

towards us, we expect to see the rain by 2:00, 3:00 in the afternoon getting heavier as the day wears on. w we expect earl parallel to the outer banks. just about 2:00, 3:00 tomorrow morning and as it continues up the coast to the jersey shoreline and then new england, we expect it might possibly make landfall along to nantucket where it juts out. it doesn't have to make landfall to cause major problems. it is moving forward at 18 miles per hour. that will increase the possibility of storm surge where you get most of the damage through the storm surge, but we look for heavy rains, high winds and, again, hurricane force winds extend out 90 miles from the center of the storm. so you don't have to make landfall to get major impact from this hurricane. we'll continue to monitor it and there will be an update coming up from the national hurricane center within the hour. more details for you. >> thanks very much, al. let's get over to meteorologist bill karins. i can tell you fraught talking to al earlier, those winds have picked up where he is. what are things looking like right now? >> i am
have declared states of emergencies. thanks for joining us this morning, i'm megan pringle. >> i'm jamie costello. >> let's go right to weather. here's meteorologist justin berk. >> we are checking out the latest on earl. earl has gotten stronger. it really increased strength yesterday. it surpassed that. this morning's advisory from the national hurricane center, showing 145 mile-per-hour winds. a very clear distinct eye now. roughly 30 miles across. the wind field of tropical storm force winds extends 230 miles away. which means if the center of the storm is 230 miles away from ocean city, they'll still get tropical storm force winds. the one good thing here is that the passage of earl off the coast will be the weaker side of the storm. usually the right side with forward motion. the worst part of the storm is out to sea. the beaches under a tropical storm warning. winds averaging between 40 and 60 miles per hour this time tomorrow into the early part of the afternoon. waves probably 10 to 20 feet. we'll be standing there live from ocean city. coastal flood advisory, not from w

and van ness, what is your first question? >> [inaudible]. >> the pedestrian scramble, we use that when we have a high volume of pedestrians or turning vehicles. and ellen mentioned the conflict of turning vehicles and pedestrians. and we use the pedestrian scrambles in the financial district and south of market and union square when we have tight intersections and in larger intersections, doing a pedestrian scramble would require more signal time and that could have negative impacts on muny -- muni and those are things that we balance. >> and [inaudible] intersection is always my nightmare, and if we re[inaudible] driver's license and make a tough examination and they have to pass every question and if they don't pass, no license, make it work out. [applause] and instead of spending money, educating, there is no need for more education, they know but they ignore it. and we have to make it very, very, enforce the law very strongly. and in england and hong kong, and you know when you cross the street, you cannot pass [inaudible] and this side they got a green [inaudible] it hold up other t
and the reason why those of us who advocated for no right turn on red, and then signs. i wouldn't matter signs at 80% of intersections, and that said right turn on red after a full stop for no one else is using the intersection. but the problem becomes that having made the law that right turn on red, people start thinking that they have the right to make that right turn on red. hold that thought, because i want to talk about one other thing, this last point about the expectation that if there are two teenagers standing on the corner, you ought to be slowing down or showing you are aware are them in some way. the highway department has the signs that show the family running across the highway to alert drivers on interstate 5, that might be refugees dashing into the roadway to find freedom. and the notion presumably is when you drive on interstate 5, you don't expect to see a family run across the roadway. whereas when you drive in san francisco, you ought to expect to see teenagers stoned on testosterone and as a as -- seniors and when i give safety tests, they are all on drugs and they are l
it was an oversight on my part and believe me, it will not happen again. i have not used to the city rationale that someone not under oath will lie. i hope you notice when other city employees are not taking the oath and meet them with skepticism. i appreciated it president peterson's concern about the lack of counsel, from the presentation and request for reconsideration. i think this may end up in court, and we would be willing to take any this statement i made under oath. and i don't believe it that i said anything other than what i had already said under oath in prior testimony at the time of the actual appeal. the reason i am here is because basically i viewed a lot of hearings and you can go listen to these on the sunshine ordnance task force website. those are the statements i made, i don't think they are in any way false, and i will be using them to talk about this issue. one of the things you have to understand in cases of abuse, it is usually a crime of power. as an individual citizen against the city agency, who will have the power? the city agency. a main conc

"the communist army plans the destruction of railroad and highway facilities to paralyze transportation and communication, while san francisco and the bay area are made a focal point in a red struggle for revolution and control of the government."

the school supplies and healthy snacks. what we realized was our schools were important in the community. us with our community partners around our neighborhood went into our elementary school and started a pta. there hadn't been a pta there for 15 years mua lot of us don' have children. it doesn't matter you don't have to be a parent to be on the pta. i never knew thachlt we do events for the children with the pta. we also started and promoted and pushed to get a learning center in the public housing. and we get volunteers from all over the community to come in and volunteer in the community room in the schools and things like that. where that connects with the safety is because we feel that if you know your neighbors and they know you and especially the children that what we are building as a family. we want to build a family in our community because this is a great way to be safe. it would builds and opens a door when people in the community need support service like drug rehab. if we have homelessness and things like that. that we can actually build around the support network. we brought

our efforts. some of the things and actually pg and e was an original founder that got us started on our efforts. and of the things we work on one is to maintain and to continue to update our neighborhood disaster response plan. we have been developing a plan and our updating it and continuing to revise it. the plan basically out lines how the various organizations within our network will work together and coordinate and consolidate their resources and efforts in the result of a disaster. the plan defines the roles the agencies will play. what roles will the medical facilities play and how the 3 will consolidate the resource. the crisis counseling what the roles are. also important factor obviously is how we can stay in communication in the aftermath. with the assumption in a major earthquake there may be not power or working land lines or cell phone service. one thing we did was to purchase radios for shart range communication and hand radios for our central system to communicate with dem and other organizations. sorry. >> and so, you know, and the plan also identifies potential
